Poster for IAVDC's spring 2013 performance "Home/Unrestrained"--image of dancers in punky/goth clothing on a beige dance studio floor, in a variety of standing, sitting, and lying down positions, dancing. The image is a rectangle, slightly blurred/cartoonized, and it's on a background of blurred and scribbled grey and black lines thickly covering other colors, like blue, green, and red, for an overall complex textured looking grey background. On this background are words, and blurrier grey clouds further offsetting the information about the times and dates of the performances, as well as a line of logos: wheelchair access, scent free, gender neutral restrooms, and the sponsors RACC, MRG, Spirit Mountain, and Work for Art.
